You Are What You Wear

Author David Zyla of the book, Colour Your Style wrote: “Even if your wardrobe is filled with clothes of a variety of colours and shades, there is always the colour that you give a greater preference to because you feel more comfortable and confident in it. It is the very colour that reflects your character."
So with that said, what does the colour you wear say about you? We took the colours of the rainbow as inspiration and looked into the colour psychology behind your colour choices.
Power, excitement, strength, love and energy.
Red is worn to grab attention - that’s why it's commonly used on warning signs. It’s the power colour and it’s been scientifically proven that wearing it can breed success. When in doubt, wear red.
Confidence, success, bravery and sociability.
Orange gets it attention grabbing quality from red and positivity from yellow. It projects a friendly and creative vibe. Wearing orange is a bold statement and indicates you’re a social person who likes to stand out.
Creativity, happiness, warmth and cheer.
Wearing yellow is a sign of positivity. It brings a happy and fun mood that lifts those around you. It’s a youthful colour that indicates child like qualities so wear carefully!
Nature, healing, freshness and quality.
Green is the colour of nature and represents peace, growth and balance. When it’s worn, it projects a confident and environmentally friendly vibe and can make the wearer feel grounded.
Trust, peace, loyalty and competence.
Blue is the calmest of all colours and creates a sense of reliability. People associate the colour blue with intelligence and trust - that’s why many working uniforms are blue (like the health sector).
Compasion, sincerity, sophistication, sweet.
Often tied with femininity, the colour pink promotes comfort and affection. We associate the colour with romance such as Valentine’s Day. Those who wear it tend to be gentle and loving people.
